Arjuna makes YouTube debut!

Hey there folks!
     Do check out the March episode of Shoma Vs Roma in Just Released for a glimpse of Arjuna and moi :) The clip can be viewed right here.

Mr. Raghu Krishnan of The Economic Times shares his thoughts on Arjuna!

" Anuja Chandramouli's book is a very passionate one, right from the dedication (which reads "For Veda Vyasa--the finest storyteller this world has ever seen and the man who gave me the great love of my life") to the conclusion ("His embodied soul freed itself and soared heavenwards to where Krishna, Abhimanyu, and all those he had loved best, stood waiting to receive him."). It is the intensity of her writing which transforms the book into something which is much more than a 21st-century retake of the Mahabharatha. While reading her book on the greatest archer-warrior of Kurukshetra, one can almost hear M S Subbulakshmi sing "Arjuna vacha" in her eternally-popular recording of the "Vishnu Sahasranamam", introduced by Rajaji and played in millions of homes not just as a part of everyday life but at the moment when the soul leaves the body."

Mr. Raghu Krishnan, retired deputy editor of the Economic Times shares his thoughts on Arjuna here

Thank you so much, Mr Raghu Krishnan for my favorite compliment on the book. Comparing my writing to MS Subbulakshmi's heavenly singing, makes me so happy, I could cry :)
